POLARIS Laboratories will host its second set of oil and coolant analysis training classes October 26-28 at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Edmonton. Because the new POLARIS facility has been consistently exceeding company expectations in both performance and growth and there is increasingly high interest among prospective customers, the three-day training session has been scheduled a second time to support the company’s expanding customer base. Registration forms are available at www.PolarisLabs.com or call 877-808-3750, ext. 264.
Now processing more than three times the sample volume it was generating at the end of 2008, a second shift has also been added to accommodate the 4,000-square-foot laboratory’s consistent increases in production. Although POLARIS CEO Bryan Debshaw and the company’s three founding partners had expected immediate growth, the facility has far exceeded their initial expectations.
“Canada’s strength in the oil and gas, mining, construction and transportation industries has been a major reason behind our Edmonton laboratory’s success,” Debshaw said. “We expected it to take three years to reach the volume we’re currently processing today.”
Most recently, the laboratory announced it will be providing fluid analysis services for the City of Edmonton. “Now, more than ever, companies are looking to reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment life and that’s what we do,” Debshaw added. “We offer quality test results with innovative data management solutions, training and extensive field services at a price almost 30 percent lower than that of our competitors.”
